Go ghost hunting in Newcastle Castle

Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear

Uncover the horrifying history and hauntings of the castle from which Newcastle gets its name.

From a fort to a court, Newcastle Castle has played a significant role in local justice throughout its 2,000-year history and is one of England’s most haunted castles and prisons.

Hear the gruesome details of real hangings, see the site of the 1694 Newcastle witch trials and follow in the fateful last footsteps of the victims of the merciless Victorian serial killer Daniel Feany.

Inside the Castle Keep join paranormal investigators as they use new age ghost-hunting equipment to contact the spirit of Poppy the Flower Girl and the vengeful Black Monk.

Descend the narrow stone steps to the execution pit for a chilling séance you’ll never forget – if you live to tell the tale.
